Saturday - Renew

The Problem of Renewal
Otherwise known as Surrender

The brownness of the fields and the grayness of the sky
lack the vibrancy of real color
fading purposeless expanses of God's earth
wishing for a second chance revival

the inner dark abyss scaring all those who know themselves cowards
chasing every scared mask wearing party lover
yet never moving anywhere because it lurks inside as real being
wishing for a second chance revival

the bent up beat up broken down body waster
lying drunk on the cracked curb of Bourbon Street
among the litter of the bedazzled fiberglass parade
wishing for a second chance revival

wishing for a second chance revival
escapism born of broken armor lacking luster
the choice is known and still avoided
being a human renewed is vulnerability unconquerable

Epilogue

being a human renewed is vulnerability unconquerable
because the dream and wish are quite the same
to be a being fully worth being and known
requires letting vulnerability to conquer
